I first heard about NFTS Games thanks to the EGX 2014 coverage by my good friends at 1001Up. Since then I’ve kept a close eye on them, even covering their Graduate Showcase earlier this year. When I heard they would be at the NEC for EGX 2015 I told them I was definitely coming to see them. Alas, I almost missed them.
The careers section of EGX was somewhere between the XBOX and PS4 booths, and I was expecting big banners to let me know NFTS was there but they barely had a tag on their booth in tiny letters—at least tiny for EGX. It was an odd placing and Tony Evans, Games Curriculum Coordinator and Social Media Master commented on it, regretting it as the bigger booths drew attention away from them.
If it hadn’t been for Tony tweeting me right before I left, I might have missed what the students had for display and I would’ve been very sad.
